He was a very hardworking, outgoing man who loved his friends and family. His favorite pastime was hanging out with friends and socializing with a cold Beer.  He loved football, especially the Denver Broncos, and would often work himself into a boisterous vocal frenzy over a game.  He loved to make people laugh and enjoy life. In his younger years, he enjoyed hunting and would often tell stories of those events.  His home and garden where his pride and joy and he was proud of the fact that he had created and built it all himself.  His favorite place to be was out on his patio with his friends, so he will be brought home to the patio for his visitation and friends joining to share a beer and celebrate his life.

Spencer is survived by his daughter Susan Atkinson of Preston, one sister Adele Rogers of Salt Lake City, Utah, one grandson, Spencer Kade Atkinson of Nichols Georgia, and numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents a son Bobby Rogers, and 10 siblings.

Love this picture of my dear friend Spence. I can hear him laughing just looking at it...and don't miss the fact he still rolled his sleeves up! I have so many stories to tell, but probably not here. He was a good friend to all the Harmer family , and since all of them were waiting for him with a cold beer there will be a fun party in Heaven right now! (Only Gayle and I can't join in right now) Didn't matter when you stopped by, his house and yard were always neat as a pin, there was a warm welcoming hug and a few laughs. You will be missed Spence!

Uncle Spence will be missed. He was a great uncle and had a quick wit that made us laugh. I remember we had one of our reunions in 1985 at Spencer's house in which he made the best Dutch oven scalloped potatoes in the fire pit and his secret ingredient was of course Beer. 😀 I am glad he has reunited with all his family. What a reunion.

Love this picture, he still has that awesome smile!! I loved uncle Spencer's Smile and Contagious laugh. I'm sure my Dad, his brother Russel are having many hugs and laughter together on the other side. Hugs to the family.
